paul ryan said is very interesting because we had an editorial on monday from glenn hubbard, mitt romney's economic adviser, essentially saying that yes, we recognize we need to talk about tax increases for the rich. i mean, he actually stressed that that should be the starting point of a discussion. he didn't say, glenn hubbard, that he increases -- he wants to see increases in tax rates. he was looking at closing loopholes, things like that, but he was willing to put that on the table. the problem, though, is that even if advisers like glenn hubbard are saying that, what we're seeing is people like paul ryan still very much signaling strong opposition to that idea. >> what's your head count in the senate, the number of republicans -- >> in the senate? >> yeah. >> i think the senate will pass whatever the leaders agree to. i think like with most of these things now, they'll have to go to the house floor without knowing -- without the votes. the question is who can you lose and still pass it? you'll lose some liberal democrats, but i think you're going to get a base support of dem

. the convention did not so -- to not go so great, especially clint eastwood. paul ryan was a pretty strong collect -- pretty strong selection and was a strong campaigner and pleased the conservative base. on the other hand, the challenger did not when wisconsin, so it didn't pay off and that regard. but the first debate did pay off. romney came in well prepared. for a lot of people predisposed to not like him, he came off as presidential and smart and comfortable with himself. it was obvious the president prepared for the wrong debate. he prepared for romney to take a host of positions he did not put forth in that first debate. -- he was not able to keep it in that debate that followed. three quick narrative that turned out to be true but the american public. americans want to be helpful. during america -- during an election like this, they want to be inspired and told the world can be better. this is the main reason obama was let the first time around. had it was a lot tougher the second time because we're still experiencing a downturn, but he said stick with me and we can do this together. romne
by spread of 44% to 37%. paul ryan is back in the state. that is a must win for the republicans in early voting. the democrats are up there as well. obama superior organization here in the state is helping him out at this point. republican national committee has expressed concern about voting fraud here in the state. they sent a letter to the secretary of state who responded to those concerns. but over late last week, a woman was arrested here for trying to vote twice. as it turns out, she was a republican. it's no the clear who she was trying to vote for. they're making -- taking every precaution possible to assure the voters that the voting machines here are safe and that the vote will go well here. john? >> all right. thanks, miguel live on the vegas strip. now to wisconsin, where president obama holds the first of three rallies today. now wisconsin's voted blue since 1984. some of the margins are razor thin. john kerry won by 11,000 votes in 2004. al gore by less than 6,000. and the romney campaign hopes that with native son paul ryan on the ticket they can take it back. i'm joined b
paul ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election loss, paul ryan pointed to the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't yet sold on the democrats' agenda. >> whether people intended or not we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. these idea s we've talked about i think they're popular ideas. this was a close election and unfortunately, divided government didn't work well the last to years. we have to make sure it works the next two years. both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: can you see yourself supporting a plan for raising tax rates. >> rhyme not for tax hikes. i do not support raising tax rate, period. i've been saying that my entire career. >> note to house republicans, the p-90 x classes begin again this morning. >>> there is little confidence amon
hampshire michigan, nevada, wisconsin! paul ryan said home state. >> paul ryan who? >> bill: i know. and of course, ohio! right! and then. >> got my ohio state hat on. >> bill: north carolina, sadly went to mitt romney, and that's a battleground state he won. florida is still -- don't know where we came out. >> too close to call. >> bill: the president last night stepping on stage at the mccormick center, first thing he did was salute. there were three people that really helped. bill clinton for sure. joe biden for sure and michelle obama. >> michelle, i have never loved you more, i have never been prouder that watch the rest of america fall in love with you too, as our nation's first lady. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to
in cleveland. ohio is the only at a time that is getting visits from the governor, his running mate paul ryan, president obama and vice president joe biden. the governor also visited ohio on friday night and that event drew huge crowds. estimates ranging from the 20,000 and 30,000 but to give you a better idea. how every single vote will be, a new poll shows that the election is in a dead heat. both men getting 48% support among likely voters. one person who will break down all the results on tuesday night joining me now. you know him well. host of power play on fox news. you have an important role because you are part of the decision desk and one of those guys that needs to make a call in the laugh. that is scary position to be in? >> never a doubt, no fear whatsoever. it's totally cool. >> you know what you are doing. i respect the work you do. its true group of professionals. i wanted to talk about the polls. columbus dispatch in ohio has it toss-up, in the president's favor. tribune in pennsylvania does a poll that showing it tied up in pennsylvania. tied in pennsylvania! that was suppose
, mama. from there, he flew to cleveland, ohio, joined by running mate paul ryan in a final bid to win the all-important buckeye state. >> it's a big day for big change. we're about to change america to help people in ways they didn't imagine they could be helped with good jobs and better take-home pay. >> reporter: romney also traveled through pittsburgh, pennsylvania, seeking an upset in a state that hasn't voted republican for president in more than 20 years. and the campaign dispatched ryan to richmond, virginia, for one last appearance. and also released a five-minute video online. >> this isn't a campaign about me. and it's not a campaign even about conservatives versus liberals. or republicans versus democrats. it's really a time when america is going to have to ask, what are we as a country? >> reporter: meanwhile president obama finished his official campaigning last night with a rally in des moines, iowa. >> iowa, we're here tonight because we have more work to do. we're not done yet on this journey. we've got more road to travel. >> reporter: that road took the president hom
neutral publicly but considers a royal ally and congressman paul ryan who is supporting price. last night ryan responded to boehner's memorable line about whether ryan may step up and lead the republican party. >> i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy -- >> i take that as a great compliment from john. i've been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion of ideas. >> conservative blogger eric erickson is among those who think ryan should step up. he wrote in his influential blog, quote, john boehner has been willing to throw his conference under the bus repeatedly. house republicans should think very carefully if the faux tan face of john boehner is the face they want for their party the next two years. they should consider paul ryan as their speaker. that is ideological shots fired, if you will. and finally in a few minutes we do expect to hear from which party maine senator elect angus king will caucus with. interestingly enough we know of no one-on-one meetings. this is exactly what everyone has assumed the entire time that he will caucus with the democr
he's running on adrenaline. paul ryan was running on fumes. the two of them tonight will run apparently on fast food as they made a stop together in ohio a while ago. s.e., apparently the governor picking up a burger with no cheese, a frosty or chili. for a guy who eats exclusively organic, we'll see how that goes. >> what kind of frosty. in intel there? >> reporter: none so far. >> peter, have fun tonight. we're watching right now live footage of mitt romney leaving his plane. we'll keep on that. as for the president, he's camped out in chicago today playing some basketball as he does to clear his mind. he's off the trail today, but he's doing satellite interviews. the president got a little emotional last night in iowa speaking to 20,000 speupportersn his final rally ever as a candidate. >> i'm still fired up, and i've got work to do. that shows you what one voice can do. >> nbc's kristen welker is at obama headquarters in chicago. kristen, what's the mood like there? >> reporter: good afternoon, s.e. there's a lot of excitement and anticipation mixed with some nostalgia. t
of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the john boehner approach which is boehner saying i'll agree to revenues as long as they come as a result of economic growth. in other words, we won't legislate changes in taxes. we'll hope that revenues
. >> this is a puzzle about how he played his cards. he picked paul ryan, who has big ideas -- and this appetite -- it can be sated. he will get a lot of cred from the voters pavillion. instead you get the worst of both worlds. you get whatever criticism there was. and they use him like tim pawlenty. aey haven't talked about single tough choice. >> for the c-span audience, one question from earlier -- there are two big questions. i am not convinced. one question, why did mitt romney not pivot to the center, as he did in denver in the debate, why didn't he do that in april. that was the time to make the shift. the obama team forecast their strategy. >> the reason was -- you wrote brilliantly about it. until the convention, the campaign they ran was not good until the convention. they wasted money in not buying adds earlier. he could have moved to the middle. the republicans didn't think they could win and would have taken any transition. and an email from northern chile -- what impact will latino voters have? you bring a lot about immigration reform. >> new mexico wasn't in play. it went automati

in "the wisconsin state journal." observers say paul ryan now a front-runner for the 2016 gop nomination. tell me we're not already talking about 2016. >> let the race begin. of course, we're keeping our eye on another big story as well this morning. can you probably see the flags moving pretty briskly behind us. that is a sign of what's to come as nasty weather, a nor'easter bears down on already storm-ravaged parts of this east coast. al is live along the new jersey shore with what we can expect. >> all right. we want to get right to our top story, the election results. nbc's kristen welker had a late night covering president obama's campaign, and she joins us this morning from chicago. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. well, president obama is waking up as a two-term president. a lot of people said it wouldn't be possible because of the stagnant economy, but he was able to rally his core constituents, women, african-americans, young voters works turned out in force to send him back to the white house. a triumphant president obama walked out to a
, not enough information to make a call. this is where mitt romney found his running mate in paul ryan. thought that would do the trick. it hasn't yet. >> it hasn't done the trick. but this is a state that hasn't gone republican since 1984 when ronald reagan won their handily. in 2004, george w. bush did try and turn wisconsin republican, he almost did it. it has been democrat for obama in the l.a.x. election by 14 points. but republicans wanted to make wisconsin part of the battleground as a fail safe against ohio. >> that was not really a battleground state for all practical purposes until governor romney put paul ryan on to the ticket and this moved it into the uncertain column but i think it would be a real surprise to most observers, independent observers if somehow mitt romney won that state. it's just a democratic state. what has it gone last six presidential elections democrats have won out there. >> pelley: and paul ryan's not particularly well known throughout the state. he's a congressman from the first congressional district and beyond that the folks in wisconsin don't know him well
is paul ryan of the house budget committee. they represent a youth movement. there are a lot of people in john boehner's world. there is not a day-to-day parlor in shape. >> i cannot go on without asking about paul ryan and the role he has played in this congress and the degree to which his several celebrity is embraced. he is the one that got out. is everybody in the republican leadership and ranks? are they happy to see him there? do they respect him as much as they are said to? >> the people who distrust paul ryan in the republican party are the members of the so-called tuesday group, the waning in number group of moderate republicans. they have the imposition of the so-called ryan budget as the republican house budget. that budget have been kicking around for several years when he was the ranking member of the budget committee. he would introduce that as the majority budget. when the tea party wave came in and the republicans took the house and now ryan is chairman of the house budget committee, ryan was the very careful to develop consensus among these think tanks. a small number
appearances to boost turn-out. >> i feel great about ohio. >> paul ryan and his wife voted in wisconsin. ryan met up with ryan in ohio where they greeted an thanked the volunteers. >> i'm so optimistic. not just about the results of the election, but optimistic about what is ahead for america. >> i got a good feel for it on the ground. it didn't feel it in 2008 frankly. we have momentum. >> tossups are a slight essential for ohio and pennsylvania for president. g.o.p. candidates traditionally outperform the polls on election day. >> we do better on election day. that historically has been the pattern. democrats tend to try to bank as many votes as they can. in early voting and absentee ballots. >> without a win in ohio, romney's path to 270 electoral vote is harder. he focused on pennsylvania where the race tightened as a possible a terntive. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record adver
obama likes them. paul ryan for instance has said openly, "obama does not like us." paul ryan said recently that his longest conversation with nancy pelosi, the democratic leader, was 30 seconds. he's never met harry reid, the senate leader. ryan is going to be a player in all of this, and you've got to get the people together and that's the president's job. >> can biden help him on this? >> yes. it's so clear in the first four years that the dealmaking on the hill was done by joe biden time and time again. his relationship with mitch mcconnell, who is the myjority leader, republican leader in the senate, in the white house they called biden the mcconnell whisperer, because he can deal with mcconnell. so that's going to be crucial, and you know, we'll see. will he turn it over, some of it to biden? you can't turn it all over. he's got to lead and define exactly what the democratic party goal is. >> you seem to be putting all the pressure on the president. you've got house republicans who took a very, very adamant stand last time. >> yes, they did, but if you get into the details, w
is a colleague of congressman paul ryan. >> paul ryan is on the ballot because he was not willing to go into the game, and we do not know what will happen with his local scene. he is trying to retain his congressional seat. we sought an unreal crackdown on the rights of workers to collective bargaining to organize the state of wisconsin. you have people who suffered tremendously. as i said earlier, both of my parents were nurses. the war on organized labor in the state of wisconsin has massive impact on the rest of the nation, so i think the idea that tammy baldwin won this race instead of tommy thompson really represents a push back, largely from organized labor and working people that have really taken it on the chin by scott walker and under the broader policies of the obama administration, it has been a one-two punch, but this is a real push back for labor. for tammy baldwin, an openly gay woman who has been very outspoken on social issues and national security i think is a pretty big step forward. tommy thompson would have been like going to the stone age in a lot of ways. >> we ar
differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and months ahead we face a series of tremendous challenges and opportunities. there is the fiscal cliff. a combination of spending cuts and tax increases mandated by law. congress will be asked to raise the nation's debt ceiling. legislation will be needed to keep the government running as a continuing resolution under which we are currently operating. amid this short-term hurdles we face the greatest challenge of all. a massive debt that is smothering growth and exceeding the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing
campaign went in there and they've been challenging hard. >> the home state of paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side so it's a blow for the republicans. >> it came into play when he was the nominee and it means absolutely... i think it means absolutely romney has to carry ohio. if he didn't carry ohio he could get through the 270 through wisconsin and colorado. if he doesn't have wisconsin, that makes ohio even more important for him. >> yes, even though wisconsin has been consistently democratic it was carried by 5,000 votes by al gore and 10,000 votes by john kerry. i mean itas very, very close. so this is a real plus for the obama folks and a real roadblock because in view of scott walker's emergence and dominance of that state as the governor not simply winning the governorship but then beating back the recall efforts so effectively as he did... >> ifill: remember when we were at the republican national convention the most popular people in the room, the most population delegation, reince priebus beings every time the name wisconsin came up because of
paul ryan's role in this campaign and how that role was shifted or even erased halfway through. >> yeah. i thought that was -- that was symbolic of the state of the big debate and what both campaigns knew americans to believe about it. republicans were very, very excited to have a large philosophical debate and the appointment of paul ryan as vice presidential candidate when it was kind of a moment when they really seemed to think that they were going to get it. >> john: i thought so. >> paul ryan spent a week where he would talk about this debate. going to have the debate. when does the debate start? let's do it. it was good-bye paul ryan. >> john: why was that, jonathan? they didn't get the bounce in the polls because of his appointment or because of the stench comments? >> i think it was the fact that they never wanted to have the debate. >> john: really. >> they knew the debate was bad for them. i think they needed paul ryan on board. romney liked paul ryan but the campaign -- the only campaign that gave
, pro-life core, he lost to bernie sanders in vermont. paul ryan, who called rape just another method of conception, paul ryan did win back his house seat, but he lost the vice presidency in rather spectacular fashion. and tom smith, who thinks getting pregnant out of wedlock is totally similar to getting pregnant by being raped, just put yourself in the father's position, he lost his u.s. senate bid to incumbent democratic senator bob casey of pennsylvania. republicans who were forced to campaign on their anti-abortion politics, by and large, did not fare well this year. but by all means, republicans, follow the anti-abortion movement's advice and campaign harder on your abortion politics next time. really. really, go for that one third of the electorate that thinks they agree with you on this issue before they've heard you really explain it. maybe you can petition to change the rules of mathematics so that 36% will add up to a majority. regardless, definitely talk more about rape, you guys. keep it up. ry to stump some political junkies with questions from bing elections. do you kno
close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welcome news. how does he handle the meeting with the business leaders today some. >> i wasn't there. they didn't invite me. i'm not a business leader. >> you think he has a clear -- i won't say mandate but the
in chief aura. >> there is an important role that the federal government plays. romney and paul ryan talked about the government needs to get out of the way. >> romney specifically said he would cut fema. >> the last thing people want when catastrophe strikes is the government to get out of the way. >> some people remember obama came in in the middle of a crisis and he was cool headed. they were reminded that this guy doesn't react as much emotionally as we like to saee, when a crisis hits, he is the guy we would like to see. >> over here to your stage right. hi. what will be president obama's 3 legacy initiatives? what luck willie have getting those through to the congress? two.ll teaake an interview with "the des moines register." he talked about immigration. he can get that done if he plays his cards right. he thought he could get a grand bargain. that will be harder to have a balanced approach to fighting what is -- that is two. >> i would think a third legacy would be a health-care. republicans have been saying all these things are going to happen under obamacare. now was on the eviden
